Larry Karaszewski on

The Brass Bottle

Released 1964
Distributor Universal Pictures

This inconsequential comic fantasy from 1964 remains a rainy day favorite thanks to the peerless Tony Randall who stars as an agitated architect getting some unwanted assistance from a very persistent genie played by the always affable Burl Ives. A lighter-than-air mix of magic spells and harem girls, it almost certainly pointed the way to co-star Barbara Eden’s long-running series, I Dream of Jeannie.
